This week I’ve been a bit of a slacker with my Project 366, so instead I’ll share some photos of my cake making experience for the Super Bowl. I’m not a baking fan, I like cooking, but baking and I don’t really get along. Whenever I see pictures of a really great looking cake that the directions swear is so easy to make even the world’s worst baker can do it, I always say that I want to try it but I never do. Maybe its because I’m finally starting to understand football and that the New York Giants were in the Super Bowl, I decided to make a cake for the occasion. I did cheat and make the cake from a box mix, but the end results were a pretty cool looking cake, which never would’ve happened if I attempted to make it from scratch.
What I used:
– chocolate cake mix (to represent the dirt under the “grass”)
– vanilla icing
– green food coloring
– blue and green sprinkles
Despite sprinkles being everywhere after I was done covering the whole cake, it was a rather easy cake to decorate. The original plan was to have white lines of icing on the cake to look like the lines of the football field, but once I started making them, it made the cake look bad, so luckily I was able to take them right off with a toothpick. I made a cake to honor the Giants and they won the Super Bowl, go figure. Baking, maybe you and I can be friends after all.
